Subject: Excellent quality 39NYWF images
Some of the best silent footage of the '39 NYWF. Excellent color and film condition and transfer to digital. Highly recommended.

Subject: Excellent preserved footage
Get the Mpeg-2 and a cup of coffee and watch this full-screen. Super detail and color! Among all of the footage of NY World's Fair 39 that I've seen, this has some of the best-detailed views of the superb 30's architecture.

The diving at the end is awesome!
This one is truly "fair to the fair" LOL
